Rate this:
This is a bilingual retelling of five Chinese proverbs that use animals of the land, sea, and sky in metaphor. Accompanied by delicate and dimensional paper-cut illustrations, the text clearly conveys the essence of five important values. The Lazy Farmer wishes to achieve something without any effort. The Musician and the Water Buffalo stresses the need to speak to someone in a manner he or she can understand. The Crane and the Clam tells how a third party can benefit from a quarrel between two people. An Old Horse encourages us to value the wisdom of an experienced elder. The Dragon Lover portrays the psychological reaction we all have, at one time or another, to cover up our fears.
